By the way, "the otyher thread" link leads to an "invalid thread" error.

fixed the link. you must have missed the thread where people nominated books (http://www.rangefinderforum.com/forums/showthread.php?p=334237#post334237).

after we vote, order the book(s) chosen if you want to. we'll discuss it throughout august.

voted for:
william eggleston's guide - william eggleston
-Because it is so different from what I do I think it would be refreshing to study.

I voted for the Eye of Eisenstaedt because of the incredible range of subjects and subject matters that Eisenstaedt shot. I think that the book would provide for some very interesting discussions here.
